Structure can help share B.C.’s story: Lorriman

The 90-foot-high roof structure that local officials want to build as a centerpiece on Lots 1 and 9 in Whistler Village could help other B.C. communities share their stories and speed their recovery from the devastating effects of the mountain pine beetle, a Whistler lawmaker said during last week’s Lots 1/9 open house.

Councillor Bob Lorriman, a member of the task force that has been working on a master plan for the site, on Thursday (Oct. 18) said the wood, glass and cable structure proposed for the roof over the outdoor ice skating rink “shows that by using wood, you’re limited only by your imagination.”
